White Glacier is a valley glacier occupying km 2 in the Expedition Fiord area of Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, Canada (longitude °50', latitude 79°30'). It extends in elevation from 56 m to m above sea level, a range which, as noted by Dyurgerov (), is exceeded only by Devon Ice Cap in the world list of glaciers with measured mass balance.

Baby Glacier is a niche glacier occupying km 2 in the Expedition Fiord area of Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut, Canada (longitude °58', latitude 79°26'). It lies some 8 km west of the terminus of White Glacier in the same drainage basin as Crusoe Glacier, and extends in.

The negative mass balance of most Arctic glaciers may be a response to a step-like warming in the early twentieth century at the termination of the cold Little Ice Age. Arctic ice masses outside Greenland are at present contributing about mm yr −1 to global sea-level rise.

The glacier mass balance provides information about the amount of water stored or released by a glacier within a given time period (Cogley et al., ).The glacier mass budget is characteristically evaluated over one hydrological year (October 1–September 30) and is reported as water equivalent per unit area per year (m a −1).Mass balance b (m a −1) at one point on the glacier surface.

The Axel Heiberg Glacier in Antarctica is a valley glacier, 30 nmi (35 mi) long, descending from the high elevations of the Antarctic Plateau into the Ross Ice Shelf (nearly at sea level) between the Herbert Range and Mount Don Pedro Christophersen in the Queen Maud Mountains.

This huge glacier was discovered in November by the Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen, and named by him. M.A. Ecclestone's 14 research works with citations and reads, including: Comparison of geodetic and glaciological mass budgets for White Glacier, Axel Heiberg Island, Canada.

Papers in Hydrology, no. 5,20 p. Baby Glacier, Axel Heiberg Island, N.W.T., Canada is a small ( km2), high-latitude (79°N), high-altitude (– m) glacier with a mass balance record extending from –60 to the present.

The Canada Glacier (77°37′S, °55′E) is located in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica. The White Glacier (79°27′N, 90°40′W) is located on Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut Territory, Canada.

These glaciers are at similar, yet antipodal latitudes, are roughly the same size and endure approximately the same mean annual temperature. Proceedings of the workshop at Riederalp, Switzerland, Septemberorganized by the Temporary Technical Secretariat for the World Glacier Inventory.

Main topics discussed were: techniques of glacier inventory data compilation; specific inventory difficulties with Greenland and Antarctica, rock glaciers, surging glaciers, firn and equilibrium lines, glacier identification and.

Fritz Müller engaged in geodetic survey work, White Glacier, Axel Heiberg Island, Canada (Peter Adams). mass balance of a glacier is a measure of the change in mass of the glacier, or part of it, over a period measurements are made on fewer than glaciers.

Mass-balance information is essential for defining. Analysis of the SMB record (figure 2) reveals that these glaciers were in balance between and with an ice discharge of ± Gt yr −1 (figure 2) versus a SMB of ± Gt yr −1.

Afterthe mass balance decreased from + ± Gt yr −1 (i.e. a mass.

7 Canadian native law cases: with comprehensive subject index. Ommanney’s () detailed inventory of Axel Heiberg Island glaciers, based on photography from –59, has been revisited, converted into digital format and compared to glacier extents mapped from – satellite imagery.

Our results show that the island-wide ice coverage decreased by km2 in the 42year period, a loss of. Small glaciers are highly sensitive to recent climate warming yet notably understudied, particularly at individual basin scales.

As part of this project, Braden is conducting fieldwork to study the long-term mass losses and future fate of Baby Glacier on Axel Heiberg Island, Nunavut.

The four annual surface mass balance records, spanning the 41 yr from toare not well correlated with each other (r = –), but they nevertheless display strong underlying 1 of these records has an eigenvalue of and accounts for 53% of the variance across the four time series ().The loadings of the four mass balance time series on PC1 are similar in.

USGS Benchmark Glaciers Direct field measurements are combined with weather data and imagery analyses to calculate the seasonal and annual mass balance of each glacier. This data release includes seasonal and annual glacier-wide mass balance, and the input point measurements and elevation data used for these calculations.

Among the most dramatic evidence that Earth's climate is warming is the dwindling and disappearance of mountain glaciers around the world. Based on preliminary data, is likely to be the 30 th year in a row of mass loss of mountain glaciers worldwide.
